I hate what is going on in the world right now with the war in Ukraine. So many innocent lives lost on both sides. Many of the Russian soldiers were lied to and had no idea that they were going to be invading and waging a war in Ukraine. People are fleeing Ukraine, and the lucky ones are those who actually make it out alive. Husbands and fathers have to stay behind to fight and say goodbye to their wives and children, knowing that they might not ever see them again. Their wives and children know this too. Families being tormented and terrified as bombs rain down as they shelter in basements, praying that they will make it through another day and be able to escape to safety. Captured Russian soldiers being terrified of what they may face upon their return to their homeland as their parents relay that their government is already planning their funerals. Mothers and fathers, mourning the deaths of their loved ones and children being orphaned and all for what? Would someone please tell me the truth about WHY anyone would start a war? Is the suffering of the innocent in both countries worth it? We have a Russian friend that I reached out to and he told me that he was touched by my concern for his family, who remain in Russia. So many people blame the "Russians" as a whole for this...I don't. I blame the egomaniacalpoliticians who sit in their bunkers while they send their soldiers out to die and just see them and the people who they are killing as collateral damage. It's pure insanity and has to stop!
